Dinner Table Don’ts is a (bi)weekly curation of News, Commentary and Analysis from Peter Thurley. Named after his first blog started while in university, Dinner Table Don’ts is a conversation about all the topics you were told to keep away from the dinner table.

While this (bi)weekly newsletter will be FREE for the first while as I get the kinks sorted out and onto a regular posting schedule, it will eventually transfer to a paid subscription model. It will be inexpensive, only a few bucks a month. As my capacity increases, so too may new subscription opportunities.

In the meantime, please sign up today so you don’t miss any issues.


Peter Thurley grew up on the west coast of Canada in the town of Abbotsford, B.C. Leaving the natural beauty of British Columbia for southwestern Ontario charm, Peter obtained his M.A. in Philosophy from the University of Waterloo in 2008. That same year Peter married his wife Shandi, and they now live together in Kitchener, ON with their lovable cats Miss Greyjoy Kush and Mr. Stark Haze and a Bearded Dragon named Poochie.
